You're given dialogue as you're walking onto the set and it's kind of hairy. There are 10 people standing around watching the monitor and if they don't laugh – instead of having another chance to do it – someone writes another line."

TV Guide's Matt Webb Mitovich opined that "though the'My guy friend is dating my boyfriend' gag has been done to death on TV sitcoms, 30 Rock is to be forgiven if only because the same episode gave us a preview of, no, not The Real Wedding Crashers, but Jefferson, starring... Tracy Jordan."

Isotonic hyponatremia

Isotonic hyponatremia is a form of hyponatremia with mOsm measured between 280 and 295. It can be associated with isotonic infusion of glucose or mannitol. Certain conditions, such as extraordinarily high blood levels of lipid or protein, magnify the electrolyte exclusion effect; this interferes with the measurement of serum sodium concentration by certain methods, leading to an erroneously low measurement of sodium, or pseudohyponatremia. The methods affected are the indirect ion-selective electrode assays; this is distinct from a true dilutional hyponatremia that can be caused by an osmotic shift of water from cells to the bloodstream after large infusions of mannitol or intravenous immunoglobulin. It is associated with hyperlipidemia more than with elevated protein
